This is Sandra from Candy Stripes Sweet Shop, which recently opened on Flixton Road, Urmston. Sandra traded from Urmston Market for a long time but took the decision to open her own shop due to demand from customers.
Sandra’s lovely little shop is situated just a stone’s throw from the wool shop (HMK Wools) and more or less opposite Nikki and Co. As you can see, she stocks a huge range – the above photo is only a fraction of the sugary treats crammed onto Candy Stripe‘s shelves.
As well as jarred sweets, Candy Stripes boasts a pick’n’mic section and a slush puppy machine. Sandra also stocks diabetic-friendly sugar-free sweets and chocolate and most of her sweets are vegetarian.
Small towns thrive when small, specialist shops like Candy Stripes Sweet Shop are supported by the local community, so pop in next time you’re passing or make a special trip and treat yourself to something sweet.
